Watch Cast Members From John Hughes Films Reenact Quotes
During the Ferris Bueller’s Day Off reunion episode of Josh Gad’s Reunited Apart series on June 28, stars from iconic John Hughes films remembered the late writer and director the way he would’ve wanted: with a laugh. Hughes, who died in 2009 from a heart attack, is best known as the godfather of the teenage rom-com, along with his legendary comedic writing style.
In the clip, the original stars of some of his films quoted their most famous lines, including but not limited to Molly Ringwald from Sixteen Candles, Steve Martin from Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Jane Krakowski from National Lampoon’s Vacation, Michael Keaton from Mr. Mom, and Catherine O’Hara screaming her way through Home Alone. There were even a couple of appearances from people who have since left the acting world.
Hughes said it best, “If you create great universal characters that are funny and engaging and touch people, you make something that will play everywhere.” Not only have these characters played everywhere, they’ve also endured. Watch the full clip above to take a trip down memory lane and even have a laugh or two.
